i just posted a new blog all about the new song, "UKULELE ANTHEM" (the blog's here, btw)

i started writing the song last spring, and one night in march or april i twittered from amsterdam looking for lyrics-ideas.
i asked about an empowering three-syllable object that you weren't allowed to take to work.
...i ended up incorporating way too many of the suggestions into the song, but they were so good i was like....why not just fucking end the song with a long-ass list?

i really do wanna credit all the people who wrote in, but there were a lot of doubles (i think more than one person suggested etch-a-sketch, for instance)...so now there's this thread, to keep track.

if your suggestion made it into the song, post here. if you can link to your original tweet (or cut and paste it as an image, even better), i'll love you. i'd love to get credit to all the people who tossed in ideas.


p.s. as i said in the blog, i recorded the song last week and i'll be releasing it VERY soon. stay tuned.

Figured I'd help here and give people a reference point to the tweets in question-

I think I may have mentioned "fear of heights" but I have to find the tweet. I did however come up with "This machine kills the machine." :)
